    DPR,
    For some strange reason the "plant life" in that photo reminds me of a bunch of olives stuck with toothpicks. Perhaps, it's a "martini" tree.

    Post the fisheye one? Did you get your ears in the shot
    My ears aren't that big!

    My photo turned out slightly different from Stuart's photo since I'm guessing I choose a different spot to focus on with the 10.5mm. I noticed that the photographer can manipulate the shot simply by holding the camera at a different angle while using the fisheye.

    Accord, your shot looks great, I love the early evening feel.
    TNB, great lens flare! It really works here.
    I decided to post these pics together because the distant rock formation (ancient volcano core called Boar's Tusk) appears in both pictures. It's taken from the south in the 1st pic, from the southwest in the 2nd.

    This is one of the first shots where I used my Hitech 85/P Gradual ND 1.2 Hard Edge filter. I really like it. The heavy darkening really brings the sky to the same brightness as the land. It seemed like I had a lot more to work with and was more pleased with the photo with less PP. Compare the sky colors in the two photos (the 2nd did not use the GND.)

    42mm, f/16, 1/1600, ISO 200 (screwy shutter speed. I brought up the exposure at least 2 stops in PP.)

    70 mm, f/11, 1/400, ISO 200. It was at the Sigma's minimum focus distance, resulting in the shallow DOF.

    Turo, Thanks! Seems everywhere you look in that part of AZ, there's a beautiful shot waiting to be taken...

    TNB, Love that composition. I was there in the morning and you can really see how the light affects the colors as the day goes on. i think it's pretty cool how you can seem to make the fisheye effect more pronounced by where you make your focus point. A really creative lens.

    Toriaj, Really like how the GND worked in the first shot. I've been looking at picking up one or two, maybe a .3 & .6 not sure if I should go with the hard or soft edge. Did you use just one GND @1.2 or stack? I'm guessin' you're using it the Cokin P series holder, how do you like that setup?

    Great shots everyone, seems to be that landscape is the theme. Here's my shot of the day, it's a little different. EXIF data 1/2 sec, f/3.5, ISO 1600 Nikon D70s with 18-70 lens. It was one of the buildings at Port Arthur in Tasmania, on the ghost tour. Shot is handheld.

    Hey Achuang, interesting image, it's fun to try night stuff and see how different it looks from what our eyes see!

    If I were you, I wouldn't bother with the .3. It will make such a small difference that you really won't notice it. I started with the .6, and while it did make a difference, I was constantly wishing for something more powerful. I am often shooting in situations where the sky is much, much brighter than the ground. I think a .6 or a .9 is a good starting place if you think 1.2 is too dark. I have the hard edge filter. I heard that hitech/cokin hard edge are softer than some brand's hard edge. I've been satisfied with the hard edge. I actually just handhold the filter in front of the lens, which is fine in a short exposure. For something longer, it's hard to hold it close enough to prevent reflections without bumping the lens, so if you will be using it for tripod exposures, you would probably want the holder. One nice thing about the hitech filters is the rectangular shape. The dark area is actually so large, you could use it as a regular neutral density filter by covering the entire lens opening with the dark area. Good luck, I think you'll really enjoy the filter.

    I've got a .6 graduated ND filter, and I agree with toriaj that .3 is not dark enough. If you could only have 1 filter then I'd probably choose the 0.6. Mine's a cokin medium edge.
